Oatmeal Breakfast Muffins

Be careful with these ones, they will run right through you! I am always looking for healthy recipes and I came across this recipe the other day. I got it from They are sooooooo good! They taste just like Banana Bread!

1 egg
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup applesauce
4 bananas (I only used 3)
3 T sour cream (I used fat free)
1 t vanilla

Mix the above together.

1 1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup flax (make sure to grind this, I use a coffee grinder and it works great! I bought it specifically for this purpose!)
1 1/4 cup quick oats
1/3 cup brown sugar or honey (I used about 1/4 cup honey)
1 t cinnamon
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 1/2 baking powder
1/2 cup raisins or craisins ( I left this out)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)

Mix together the wet ingredients. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Put muffins in a greased muffin tin and bake 350* for 10-15 minutes. (I actually baked them for about 20 minutes.)

Amber, just wanted to mention I have read that flax can accumulate in the prostate causing cancer. Also it is a great source of estrogen, good for us not so good for the guys. LOL hehee!
Who knows, thought I would pass it along. Thanks for the recipe. I love healthy ones, I will try it without the flax. What CHA think?

I didn't have any flax so I just added another egg and they turned out yummy! I think you could also substitute wheat germ for flax. Steve really liked these too so I will definitely be making them again! Thanks!

Oh and make sure you really spray your pan b/c I had a hard time getting mine out.
